V. C. M. Duarte received her PhD in Sciences from UMinho (PT) in February 2014 working on “Synthesis of Iminosugars Through Diastereo/Enantioselective Diels-Alder Cycloaddition” (FCT grant, SFRH/BD/61290/2009). After that, she worked during 19 months as a post-doctoral researcher in a Research Project entitled “Concise and Highly Stereo-selective Strategy in the Synthesis of Aza-sugars. Theoretical Studies and Biological Evaluation of Products.”. Her main functions were the synthesis and biological evaluation of the products, but also the supervision of master and chemistry degree students in medicinal chemistry and chemistry, respectively. She was also responsible for the security in the laboratory and for the management of the laboratory needs, like reagents/solvents/materials orders and stocks control. Moreover, she played also functions as Invited Professor equivalent to Auxiliary Professor at Minho University during two semesters (2013-2015) lecturing Laboratories of Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry at the Chemistry Graduation, and Visiting Assistant Professor at Agrarian School, Polytechnic Institute of Viana do Castelo lecturing General Chemistry at the Graduations in Biotechnology and, Science and Technology of Environment (2014/2015). Between 2016-2017 under a project funding of CUF-Químicos Industriais S.A. entitled “B2A- Benzene to aniline”, with the participation of FEUP and University of Aveiro, she moved to the Chemical Engineering field. Her main functions were the study of reaction mechanism, the development of a kinetic model for the electrochemical reaction studied, the simulation of reactor conditions in order to validate the kinetic model proposed and determine the ideal operation conditions, and also the determination of adsorption isotherms of the anodes/catalysts studied with the gases and vapours involved in the reaction process using a magnetic suspension balance. In this project, she developed a series of new skills: development of gas chromatography analysis methods, electrochemical characterization, manipulation of an electrochemical reactor, construction of installations for feeding gases and vapours. In 2018, under the consortium project “WinPSC - Novos avanços tecnológicos para a terceira geração de células solares sensibilizadas com perovskita” at LEPABE in UPorto (PT) she was devoted in combining fundamental knowledge with technological aspects to develop highly efficient, long-lasting and environmental safe PSCs. Responsible for fabricating large PSC devices and to develop high conductive glass substrates with engraved current collectors in order to achieve highly efficient PSC devices with 25 cm2 of active area. Having combined fundamental knowledge with technological aspects, since March 2019, V. C. M. is the Junior Researcher in the FCT project “SolarPerovskite - New technological advances for the highly efficient perovskite solar cells” where she combined fundamental knowledge with technological aspects to the scalling-up of perovskite solar cells. V. C. M. Duarte published 11 articles as author and co-author in international referee journals, with h-index 6 from Scopus. She also presented 2 oral communications being 1 as invited, and several poster communications. Completed the supervision of 2 graduation students, co-supervised 1 master student thesis and 1 master student laboratory project.
